Situated beneath a grove of muchenja (ebony) trees, the three rustic chalets of Crocodile River Camp all boast views across a wetland where you can see an abundance of wildlife without stirring.

Each chalet has an en suite bathroom and overlooks a dambo that attracts an abundance of wildlife. Built from natural materials sourced locally, with an imaginative design, they offer a simple, yet comfortable accommodation in South Luangwa National Park.

The highlight of any stay at Crocodile River is being able to walk to its sister camp, Chikoko Tree Camp, which takes some three to four hours on well-worn trails created by elephants and hippos. A great way to experience a walking safari in the Luangwa Valley, following in the footsteps of David Livingstone.
